Mission is now up and ready for play- I believe everything is fixed.

Name: Swords of Diplomacy
ID: ST-HNYC7SWGX
Author: @Gromio
Allegiance: Starfleet or Republic
Level: 51+
Starts at: Rolor Nebula Beta Quadrant

Bellow there's some screenshots of the first main ground map, and the opening I'm thinking of at the moment:
A message sends you into the heart of a diplomatic nightmare that may quickly turn into a time bomb. Tensions are high and the talks have yet to even begin, and two peoples attempt to settle a world they'd long ago hidden in subspace. You've been specifically selected to try and ensure the best outcome for all parties. But things never seem to be that simple for you do they? Tempers flare, fingers start pointing and you find yourself caught in a conspiracy threating two cultures, and the existence of an entire species.

    Guardians naturally have a field of Metaphasic radiation (Star trek: Insurrection) around their bodies, drastically slowing their aging to near non-existence. In the movie the radiation actually STOPPED the aging process.

    Well that region seems to be near Boslic territory. So having Boslic show up, saboteurs or otherwise, would make sense.

    The master mind behind the conspiracy (for those who'd like to submit a spy or henchmen:

    [Spoiler] A criminal organization from the future similar to the orion syndicate. (keeping with recent events in the game)

    Here's one you could use. (I think you need to de-capitalize your spoiler tag...)


    Name: Adrar Beux
    Pic:
    OVk7OJH.png

    Species: Joined Trill
    Ship: Umoya (runabout)
    Reason for attending: Concerned neutral party.
    Anything in particular you'd like them to say or do:
    Maybe the Guardians become a little concerned with his presence as his mind is unexpectedly hard to read, although he shows no ill will towards anyone. Maybe a little uncomfortably inquisitive about them (like he's trying to learn something specific), but no ill-will. Disappears when trouble starts.

    Would you like Mr Beux to have any diolog during the conference scene? Or ddirectly interact with the player?

    I should be sending you a in-game mail later today with the diolog I have right now for approval.

    Boslic? http://marhawkman.deviantart.com/art/Costume-marhawkman-Liojor-Headshotstyle-Default-01-351005646

    Hmm I just realized I didn't make a slider page... yet.

    Gotch' ya: Will this be a format for females of the speices or a particular character? I only remember one Boslic with pink hair- it's been some time since I've seen episodes with them in it.
    If she's a particular character please send me:

    Name:
    Species:
    Ship: -just in case- No guarantee of use at this time.
    Reason for attending (or who they're speaking for):
    Anything in particular you'd like them to say or do: In or out of the main conference.
    Sliders:

    The biggest problem I'm having with this one is I'm struggling to build a "skycastle" I think that's the general label around the forums. I've got the pieces set at the same height of +30 (using the Zero altitude option) but I'm still having trouble getting them to match.

    Sure! I'll be interested in seeing what you come up with.

    Well, yes, it's a specific character named Liojor. You could just have her as an alien visitor. Not sure what her motive for attending would be. But as for her ship: http://sto.gamepedia.com/Alien_Cruiser

    Sadly, no Romulans, but here's a collection of characters if background NPC's are at all lacking.
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwyGn-YYxuDHMzU0Q3VBRGlwcjQ
    If any seem interesting feel free to use them. I can provide specific character details and story information in the event that you find any fits a needed niche.


    Knowing what I do about them here's the three I'd consider for the conference (but again, take your pick of any or none depending on what you want to do with the mission.)

    Haasra - Dyson Joint Command / Starbase Magellan (scientific exchange?)
    Ji'Goro - Starfleet / Ibi Assembly (small BQ power from one of my missions, keen on expanding ties)
    Ross - Starfleet security services (may not be officially attending, but could be keeping eye on proceedings)

    None are attached to any specific starships and the only thing I'd like there to be (if you use him) is a significant interspecies incident involving Haasra.

    Last missions:

    Epoch, Part 2 [AEI]
    Transcendence, Part 4
    Memorial Tour

    Wows! That's quite a nice google drive! Also I've played quite a few of your missions really like your work.

    "Intrespecies incident" you say: Of any particular kind?

    Something novel, with lots of drink [perhaps just implied], and involving at least one ambassador and an endangered species [if difficult to stage can simply reference in conversation, happened the previous day.]

    Keep in mind that Haasra does have extensive bio-medical experience in addition to the "jack of all trades" thing (there is a reason for it, whether that makes it to one of my episodes is yet to be decided) so he may have a plausible explanation for everything.

    Lastly @thay8472 - I wasn't sure if the Ask'Kaar would have a different uniform for this situation, Also wasn't sure about what pants you use if that's not the case.

    Good attempt (almost perfect!), my comments would be to increase mouth width, mouth height (just a notch), eye size (just a notch), and make him look a bit happier (however possible, up until Trident I always used a new set of sliders). :P

    what eyebrows did you use? they look a bit off, but it might just be the angle.

    Due to a mistake I seem to have made between in foundry testing and publishing (moving essential triggers, and blocking a couple hallways), I've taken the mission down to fix it. I should get it back up by saturday night at the latest- pending theres no disaster.

    Once It's back up....
    If any of you would like the diolouge changed for a character please let me know:
